Emily will be a powerful LGBTQ voice in the Washington State Senate
Emily Randall was born and raised on the Kitsap Peninsula, the daughter and granddaughter, sister and niece of union workers and veterans, hospital employees and educators. She’s from a family of public servants, committed to their friends and neighbors.
Emily became the first in her family to attend a 4-year college because of generous financial aid, and believes strongly that all students deserve access to high-quality education – including college, job training, and apprenticeship programs. As State Senator she will prioritize programs that help prepare students for the careers needed in our community.
Emily has dedicated her career to expanding access to affordable healthcare for women and families across the country. Her commitment is personal. Emily’s sister, Olivia, was born with severe developmental and physical disabilities, and because of her access to Medicaid she was able to live a happy life for 19 years at home with her family. No one should go bankrupt or risk losing their jobs to take care of family members in need – and with health care at risk at the national level, it’s time for states like Washington to pick up the slack.
Emily chose to return home with her partner to the area she loves, and is running for State Senate because she believes strongly in giving back to the community that has given her and her family so much. She believes the time is now to rise above politics that divide us to work together for solutions that will put people first.
